About YUFE Academy 

YUFE wants to support people to develop their societies with proofed knowledge. Because of this we have created YUFE Academy, a series of lectures and workshops across Europe you can take part in from the comfort of your own couch or during your daily commute. A chance to learn in different languages and formats. Relying in the current scientific knowledge, especially in the 4 YUFE focus areas: 

  • European identity and responsibilities in a global world,  
  • Citizens’ well-being,  
  • Digital societies and  
  • Sustainability. 

The YUFE Academy activities happen through the whole academic year. The current offer is displayed in the YUFE Virtual Campus. However two main editions are organised around international events that align with YUFE mission, one in a fall term and one in a spring term: 

  • European Researchers’ Night in September 
  • Europe Day in May
